No Job Too Big or Small

Handy electrical contractors are used to working on jobs of all sizes. It doesn't have to be a huge, complete electrical rewiring job to warrant using the services of a professional. Many of our customers use electrical contractors for small jobs, just to make sure that it's done safely and to required standards. Many Handy customers book an electrician for someone else.

He went above and beyond to make sure they job was done right. If I could give him 10 stars I would!

Kemi B.

Very good professional who was excellent in doing his job & sorting out the electrical issues others seemed to have had difficulty fixing.

Nathan I.

He clearly wasn't a highly trained electrician. I knew more about installing a light than he did. He also didn't have a car.

Katy E.

Labu did a fantastic job, he was on time and very helpful. He really went the extra mile, coming with me to the hardware store to buy the fittings we needed, rather than just saying it wasn't possible. Top guy, very friendly and did a really good job too.

Noha G.

Joan was such a nice guy who did his job so effortlessly that I just did my work while he fixed all my electrical issues. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you!

Laura R.

Bill was wonderful. Courteous, punctual, and most of all was, he was able to troubleshoot and fix our broken heater.
